“This is the third edition of a very comprehensive, well-informed guide to accurately diagnosing and managing patients with dementia. I intend to continue to use it as a reference and believe that it will be useful and well received by neurologists likely to evaluate patients with cognitive complaints, primarily on an outpatient basis.” (Smita Gupta, Doody's Book Reviews, December 14, 2019)
